Mobile access, time saving benefits to network monitoring users


Mobile solutions are growing in importance for businesses around the world, while push notifications are growing in popularity, according to a survey just released.

The customer survey by Paessler also found that mobile is rising in importance for network administrators, with 49% of administrators accessing Paessler’s PRTG Network Monitor on their mobile device.

Paessler says it has responding to this increasing demand for mobile solutions, by making several improvements in mobile in the past year, including the development of a mobile application for all major operating systems, a refined user interface and the introduction of customisable push notifications.

Paessler founder and CEO Dirk Paessler said the company had worked diligently in the past year to make PRTG “more user-friendly and to develop mobile solutions, and the response from our customer base has been substantial”.

“Between our mobile success and high satisfaction rates, I believe our efforts in the past year have been a major accomplishment and look forward to providing even more for our dedicated users in the future.”

According to Paessler, among the key benefits of network monitoring, PRTG users also highlighted time and cost savings in relation to network management, with 64% of respondents reporting exceptional value in time savings and 46% realising exceptional value in cost savings.

Additionally, 55% of respondents reported weekly time savings of two hours per week or more, with 23% reporting savings of four hours per week or more.

Paessler said that by saving just two hours a week, IT departments gain 13 working days of time.

Other key findings of the Paessler survey and recommendations include:

•    Recommendation – 96% of respondents would be happy to recommend PRTG to a colleague, or have already done so
